Amsterdam, December 12, 2007 Elsevier, a leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical (STM) information, today announced that 45 French-language medical journals from Elsevier Masson will be available on ScienceDirect beginning January 3, 2008.
The titles, including Feuillets de Radiologie, Journal de Chirurgie and La Press Mdicale, represent a wide range of high-quality journals and complement the 27 ditions Scientifique et Mdicales Elsevier (ESME) titles already hosted on the platform. The importance of this content addition is two-fold: it is a response to growing customer demand in French-speaking territories for French-language content, and it furthers Elseviers local-language publishing program, which is making a wealth of important content accessible globally.
We are always striving to respond positively to customer requests and deliver the content that will help them in their research, said Jay Katzen, Managing Director, Academic & Government Products. The addition of this world-class local-language content meets both of these objectives and ensures that ScienceDirect continues to remain a comprehensive and complete platform.
The 45 titles that will be added date from the early 19th and 20th centuries and have strong ties with some of the most revered French Societies including the French Society of Rheumatology, the French Society of Anaesthesiology and the French Society of Pediatrics. The variety of specialist coverage is notable, with journal subjects ranging from anaesthesiology to pharmacology.
All of the journals to be added consist of high-quality articles, reviews and case reports. In addition, a number of the journals include some abstracts and articles in English. Subscribers will benefit from the current (2008) articles as well as four years in backfiles.
The Elsevier Masson collection on ScienceDirect will evolve with new titles added each year through new launches and acquisitions. For more information on ScienceDirect and for a complete list of titles that will be added, please visit www.info.sciencedirect.com.
